Join Us!

Here at GENERATE, we believe you win with good people, and we are all about being on mission together.
Want to join the movement?

Can you tell me about GENERATE?

GENERATE is the events arm of YM360, a Biblically-based curriculum company located in Birmingham, Alabama. We’re all about partnering with youth ministries to create moments that matter for students. We believe in strategic and intentional experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, where students are encouraged to take the next steps in their faith journey, and where they are challenged to be a person of global impact.

That sounds great! How do I get involved?

We know that you win with great people, and we’re looking for folks to join the family. Not just any old rascal, but passionate, energetic people called to share the Gospel with students. We’ll be traveling around the country this summer, facilitating camp for 7th-12th graders and their youth ministers. There will be lots of late night heart-to-hearts in a 15 passenger van. There will be long days of leading recreation games and serving at mission sites. We’re gonna have to assemble some name tags. You will go out in public more than once, dressed in matching t-shirts with your 26 closest friends. And at the end of the day, we know that a camp doesn’t change anyone’s life, but a true encounter with Jesus Christ does. We would love for you to be a part of that by applying for a position to serve with us as a family this summer.

Can you tell me about what each position actually does?

Yep. We’re all about family here at GENERATE, and first and foremost, our goal as family is to go out of our way to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ. This may look like going the extra mile to make someone’s job a little easier, working double time to meet the needs of a youth minister, or building relationships with students. We want to always be asking the question: How can we show the love of God right now?
